Postcentral gyrus is a gyrus posterior to the central sulcus. It contains somatosensory areas.

Anterior to the postcentral gyrus is the central sulcus and posterior to the gyrus is the postcentral sulcus

In the 10-20 system the electrodes C3 and C4 may overlie the postcentral cortex, - depending on the individual anatomy.
